Dream reading may sound like something from the distant future, but the Kyoto, Japan-based researchers' findings were published Thursday in Science, the Smithsonian reported. The team concluded that visual experiences during sleep can be uncovered to a certain extent by using a learning algorithm.

IBM Watson Supercomputer Learns to Curse, Resulting in Memory Wipe

Watson is the supercomputer that IBM fielded as a contestant on Jeopardy back in 2011.
